How was the White City decidedly not Beaux Arts? It was a showcase and quintessential example of the pinnacle of late 19th century Beaux Arts planning and architecture. And how is this building virtually indistinguishable from such?

@Brian: Actually, upon further review, you are right, I've misspoke. I was for some reason mixing up Romanesque (the more Baroque looking often terra cotta buildings) with Beaux Arts which is why I didn't label White City as such. My bad.

But either way, I don't think this building really qualifies as Beaux Arts in any way, I think its a very faithful use of purely neo-classical themes.

I think you're now blurring the line between your "acceptable" and "unacceptable" examples. Yes, this falls within neoclassicism... only pretty heavy on the neo-. I woldn't date this any earlier than the 1990s from even a quick glance -- based on design alone, not wear of materials. It reminds me of Robert A.M. Stern a bit. Though, that's not to discredit anything but the line you want to draw. It's a quality design. Shouldn't that be the line?

It reminds you of Stern because it is a Stern piece.

We don't know what better examples are because your criteria are inconsistent.

How about the Parillo Mansion in Chicago? This thing in Lincoln Park is massive. Reportedly worth $40million (pre-recession). Even the gravel was supposedly shipped in from France.

i think any contemporary building that tastefully uses traditional styling cues should qualify. we are never going to build buildings exactly as we did a century ago because needs change. the nashville symphony hall reflects current desire for larger windows for example which allows for more natural light.
